IHS Zambia was incorporated in December 2013, and has since acquired towers from MTN Zambia and Airtel Zambia. Today, IHS Zambia manages approximately 70% of towers in the country.
IHS Zambia is known for its strong track record and reliable power supply. Recent enhancements include state-of-the-art alarm systems, power upgrades and solar power systems. These projects, along with IHS's operational excellence, have helped reduce diesel consumption by more than 50%.
Headquartered in Lusaka, IHS Zambia has regional offices in Ndola, Solwezi, Chipata, Kasama and Livingstone.
Over the next two years, IHS has resolved to become diesel neutral across its Zambia portfolio, using a combination of on- and off-grid solutions. Batteries, charged by the grid and/or solar power throughout the day, will pick up the load when the grid stops.
IHS Zambia operates more than 200 hybrid solar sites throughout the country and continues to roll out new green energy solution systems which select the most efficient source of power, according to diesel supply, weather and electricity availability. IHS is committed to developing its services in Zambia and to meet growing demand.
The efforts of the Zambia team have concentrated on two schools: the Banani Girls School in Chisamba, and the Kamanga Primary School in Lusaka. The Banani Girls School received a refurbished generator in 2015 and the Kamanga Primary School received a customised 40-foot shipping container with tailored shelving and plenty of books to serve as the school library in March 2016. IHS Zambia co-sponsored the library, which will serve over 2,000 pupils, along with the Lions Club of Munali.
In June 2016, we also co-sponsored the school’s first computer lab along with the Lions Club of Munali. Our Zambia team donated 14 double computer desks and 25 chairs for the lab and the Lions Club of Munali supplied 25 computers.
